When illustrations and stories about the characters in Shuihuyezi interact one another, they create new meanings. For example, Lu Junyi and Yan Qing, the main subjects in this study, have opposite characteristics not only in their apparent positions (i.e. Lu Junyi is a master, and Yan Qing is an old servant.), but also in social origin, attitude to life, and value. And eternity and circulation, the symbols of the Big Dipper, which always guide ways at night, disappeared as soon as Lu Junyi was deceived by a quirk of fate. Moreover, the reality at the time did not want good looks, luxurious image, honors of wealthy family, outstanding martial arts, or a wide knowledge about the scriptures any more. On the other hand, with his broad insight, Yan Qing had excellent communication skills that worked in various situations. Also, his timely wits teach us what wisdom is and his right judgements in critical moments made Yan Qing an brilliant mediator. Such positions of Lu Junyi and Yan Qing in Shuihuyezi reflect the awareness and viewpoint of the public about current heroes and leaders in the new society. And readers will have a chance to re-consider their conventional values ‘between’ the illustrations and writings on playing cards.
